Corrupt File and/or directory using Nikon D100 and Lexar Media CompactFlash?

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Scott Kimball, Sep 13, 2003.

  1. I'm doing digital photography and last week I shot a wedding. About 70 of
    my pictures seem to have something corrupt on one of the CompactFlash cards.
    I can see them in the slide review on the back of my Nikon D100, but when I
    download them using my CompactFlash Zio Reader, I'm getting the following
    "filename001 is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted
    or unreadable."

    I have tried reading the card from my USB reader, a PCMCIA reader and
    downloading it straight from my camera through Nikon Browser. But have had
    no success.

    If anyone had any recommendations please let me know.

    Could be that Filename001 is corrupt, and everything else is OK. Perhaps
    deleting that one image in-camera will help. You can also put the disk in
    the reader and try to run a scandisk on the drive itself to repair any
    errors. (You'll need a Win95/98 system to perform scandisk).

    I've got a D100 with an IBM 1GB microdrive. I live in fear of this
    happening to me one day. (I still shoot mostly 35mm and MF, though).

    Best of luck... let us know how it works out.

  3. Put the drive in copy all files from the card to your hard disk..Do this in
    "my computer"
    go directly from your micro driv to an image drive.

    Once you have the data into another directory you can recover them. using
    one of the many the many recovery packages out there...

    I just went threw the same thing with a friend of mine...A one Gig drive
    calved and became unreadable..

    Once you get the images back Format the card and test it by loading it with
    data a few times..

    Good Luck

    Seems to me that this is the problem he's having in the first place--
    getting the files from the card to the hard drive.

    Hi Scott,

    If you are still struggling with this problem, there is another (very
    last-resort) option.

    Format the card in your camera again, then get hold of a copy of "PC
    Inspector File Recovery" and run it.
    That should at least recover most of your images, and possibly all of them.
    I have had good success in recovering images from a re-formatted card in
    this way.

    Good luck.

  6. Yes, I understand that, But Some software that automaticly transfers images
    will not transfer data that it does not recognive..
